If you are like most women in America, you:
want to lose extra weight but you’re having a hard time
don’t have time to make healthy food (you do!)
have digestive issues
have low energy except with caffeine and sugar
feel guilty about eating enjoyable food
don’t have time to take care of yourself (you do!)
want to eat what’s right for you but feel conflicted if others are eating differently
can’t seem to get off the deprivation/binge wheel
have tried lots of diets – low carb, low fat, vegarian – with little or no success
eat whatever’s around and then regret it
think you’ll be happier if you just lose those _____ pounds
eat to deal with stress, depression, anxiety, sadness, boredom, or excitement
feel less than inspired about nourishing yourself
don’t love your body
The IDEAL WEIGHT / IDEAL LIFESTYLE LAB
helps you make the shifts you want to make, one baby step at a time
It’s not about making hard choices all day long.
It’s about establishing routines that become natural, just like brushing your teeth.
Then health, wellness, vitality… just becomes who you are.
The routines, rhythms and recipes we’ll explore in the I WILL Lab are simplified versions of 5,000 year old Ayurvedic wellness practices.
These practices create a structure so that we don’t have to spend tons of time preparing food or pondering how to help ourselves get healthy.
Is it time to lose baby weight and experience radical vitality… without struggle and deprivation?
Picture your children following in your footsteps, eating what’s right for their bodies, honoring their natural rhythms, creating habits from easy, real self-care practices because it’s just what you do. Just like brushing your teeth.
Allow yourself to be nurtured by saying YES to guidance, support and inspiration!
The Ideal Weight/ Ideal Lifestyle Lab is a safe space created for busy people who want to finally make the shift into deep nourishment instead of instant gratification.
In the I WILL Lab you will be supported as you play with implementing new habits.
We provide you with simple ways to get healthy food into your body – without living in the kitchen!
We are on this journey together, everyone taking the steps which feel right for them and yet all of us moving in the same direction by following the same basic principles.
Discover an ease and a freedom with your eating habits that you maybe haven’t experienced before – ever.
And if you’ve never had this ease with food and your body…
It’s not your fault.
Think about our culture and what it encourages.
Just walk into any gas station market or fast food restaurant and processed, fried and sugary food is everywhere, while whole vegetables and fruits are rare and far between.
We see daily false, retouched images of bodies giving us a sense that we are doing something wrong, and we need to be more “disciplined” and willing to deprive ourselves to reach our ideal.
The lack of nutrients and the prevalance of unnatural, processed foods is astounding compared to other cultures, and it’s not surprising that we are feeling unsatisfied and hungry often.
So how do we make the shift from being consumers to being powerful manifesters of our desires for ourselves?
The key is turning the same kind of love and nurturing energy we’d give to our loved ones, toward ourselves.
The “Ma” in “Ma Yoga Living” means mother in just about every language, but it also means the “highest, wisest, and most powerful” in Sanskrit, the language of yoga.
With simple practices, we can learn to align with our highest Self, and let our inner “Ma” take the wheel. We can do practices to be able to hear our inner wisdom, so we start making good choices for ourselves, as well as our loved ones. We can awaken our intelligent cravings and get off the binge/deprivation wheel.
When we establish routines, patterns, and simple habits the result is our kids see these healthy choices as the norm. They may want sugary foods, but they know how to eat right.
As parents, we can say what we want to our children, and it has some affect. Our kids learn the most just by watching us.
We learn by trial and error.
Hi I’m Jessica.
When I had a baby, I realized how dependent I had been on running and grabbing ready-made food.
I didn’t know the first thing about making my own healthy food. And with my baby waking up every 3 hours, I didn’t have the time or energy follow complex recipes. I found myself grabbing my daughter’s Cheerios and goldfish, I couldn’t lose the extra weight, I felt depleted and low-energy, and I knew something had to change.
I took an online course in Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old sister science to yoga, and was blown away by how simple and yet life-changing these practices and principles were.
I set out to find ways to incorporate these powerful wellness practices into my busy mom life.
The Ideal Weight / Ideal Lifestyle program – I WILL – isn’t a postpartum diet.
